Central City Opera Guild to Hold 2022 ‘L’Esprit de Noël Holiday’ Home Tour

By Francisco Salazar

The 46th Annual L’Esprit de Noël Holiday Home Tour is set to return in-person after two years as a virtual event.

This much-anticipated walking tour will be held on Nov. 18 and 19, 2022at the Glenmoor Country Club neighborhood. Co-Chairs Louise Atkinson and Katie Grassby, longtime Central City Opera Guild members, are expecting a big turn out this year.

In a statement, Grasby said, “We are thrilled that L’Esprit is back after a two-year hiatus and that our homeowners have so graciously opened up their homes to showcase the designers’ incredible talents, all for the cause of raising money for the historic Central City Opera. All are welcome to attend this festive event and get inspired for the holiday season.”

Five architecturally diverse homes will be festively decorated by ten local florists and table designers. Floral designers participating this year include Birdsall & Co., Flower Power, Fresh Flower Market, KaraKara Flowers, and Plum Sage Flowers. The Table Designers will be Enjoué Studio, Home with Holliday, Lulu’s Furniture, T is for Table, and White Peacock. Meanwhile, Diana Anderson of DES Marketing is supplying her talents as Set Designer for the event.

This fundraiser benefits Central City Opera and is organized by volunteers with the Central City Opera Guild.
